1 999 Houston Astros Mike Hauschild RHP Dayton Ohio
2 1000 Minnesota Twins Kaleb Merck RHP Texas Christian Texas
3 1001 Seattle Mariners Logan Seifrit RHP Vauxhall (Alb.) HS Alberta
Seifrit is undersized at 6 feet, 190 pounds, and he's also a diabetic, but he has the quickest arm in the country. He can run his lively fastball up to 93 mph and shows an above-average changeup. Scouts can project on his velocity because of his arm speed. His slider is below-average right now.
4 1002 Baltimore Orioles Colton Plaia C Loyola Marymount Calif.
Plaia overcame a sluggish start to emerge as one of Southern California's top college catchers this spring, along with UCLA's Tyler Heineman. His swing had been too long, so he worked hard to shorten it up, and he has flashed decent power this spring, hitting six home runs in a pitcher-friendly environment.   He still has holes in his swing but can punish balls that are down in the zone. At 6-foot-3, 225 pounds, Plaia is more physical than Heineman but does not have as much lateral movement behind the plate. Like Heineman, he has a chance to be an average defender with an average arm, but the jury's still out on his bat.
5 1003 Kansas City Royals Evan Phillips RHP Clayton (N.C.) HS N.C.
6 1004 Chicago Cubs Tom Pannone OF Bishop Hendricken HS, Warwick, R.I. R.I.
7 1005 San Diego Padres Tony Wieber RHP Michigan State Mich.
8 1006 Pittsburgh Pirates Carlos Leal C East Central (Miss.) CC Miss.
9 1007 Miami Marlins Steve Weber RHP Eastern Michigan Mich.
10 1008 Colorado Rockies Ryan Garvey OF Riverside (Calif.) CC Calif.
The son of former major league all-star Steve Garvey, Ryan was one of the biggest names in Southern California's recruiting class last fall, but he struggled in fall ball and transferred to Riverside CC at the semester break. He is much the same player he was a year ago: a physical corner outfielder with average to plus raw power, with a tendency to swing and miss, keeping him from making the best use of his pop. He'll need to improve his pitch recognition to become a serviceable hitter, but he can punish fastballs. Garvey is a below-average runner with a below-average arm, likely tying him to left field. Scouts think it's likely the Dodgers will draft the son of their franchise icon.
11 1009 Oakland Athletics Tyler Johnson RHP Stony Brook N.Y.
12 1010 New York Mets Jared Price RHP Twin Valley HS, Elverson, Pa. Pa.
Northeast scouts saw flashes of big potential for Price this spring, but he was inconsistent with his delivery and results. His fastball will range from 87-93 mph, touching 94 on occasion, and he has a second plus pitch in his curveball. He's physical and strong, but not very projectable at 6-foot-1 and 195 pounds. His bow-and-arrow arm action raises some concerns among scouts, but they like his arm strength and ability to spin a breaking ball. He is committed to Maryland.
13 1011 Chicago White Sox Jon Savarise LHP Stevenson HS, Lincolnshire, Ill. Ill.
14 1012 Cincinnati Reds Justin Topa RHP Long Island N.Y.
15 1013 Cleveland Indians Cory Raley SS Uvalde (Texas) HS Texas
A dual-threat quarterback at Uvalde HS, Raley rushed for 1,470 yards and 20 touchdowns last fall. He hasn't played in many showcase events, and Uvalde is off the beaten scouting path in Texas, yet word of Raley's athleticism still spread this spring. His best tool is his well above-average speed, as he's capable of getting from the right side of the plate to first base in 4.0 seconds. The 6-foot-2, 185-pounder has the arm and actions to stay at shortstop, though his bat will need time to develop. That figures to happen at Texas A&M rather than in pro ball, because it may take a seven-figure offer to get Raley to sign. His brother Brooks was a two-way standout for the Aggies and now pitches in the Cubs system. Another brother, Russell, starred at Oklahoma and now coaches for the Sooners.
16 1014 Washington Nationals Mike McQuillan 2B Iowa Iowa
17 1015 Toronto Blue Jays Jonathan Harris RHP Hazelwood Central HS, Florissant, Mo. Mo.
Another work-in-progress Missouri prepster, Harris is all projection at 6-foot-4 and 160 pounds. He'll pitch at 87-91 mph in the first inning of games, but because he lacks strength he'll dip quickly to 83-87. Though he's still growing into his body, he repeats his mechanics well and gets good leverage in his delivery. His curveball and changeup could use more power but show promise. He could blossom at Missouri State, perhaps the most underrated pitching factory in college baseball.
18 1016 Los Angeles Dodgers C.J. Saylor C South Hills HS, West Covina, Calif. Calif.
Saylor has been a famous name in Southern California for some time thanks to his defense. He's a polished receiver for a high school catcher, giving him a chance to be a slightly above-average backstop with a plus arm and quick release. Scouts have major reservations about Saylor's short, very stocky frame, which is generously listed at 5-foot-10, 180 pounds. His bat is also a significant area of concern, and few scouts project him as being better than a below-average hitter with occasional pop. Scouts also have been disappointed with his energy level this spring.
19 1017 Los Angeles Angels Sam Mulroy C Princeton N.J.
20 1018 San Francisco Giants Brandon Farley RHP Arkansas State Ark.
21 1019 Atlanta Braves Sam Gillikin OF Hoover (Ala.) HS Ala.
Scouts in the Deep South contrast Gillkin, an Auburn recruit who committed as a sophomore, with fellow Alabama prep Mikey White, who has superior baseball instincts. Gillikin, though, has a better profile and more prodigious tools. His athleticism played on the football field, where he was a wide receiver and then a quarterback as a senior. A lefthanded hitter, Gillikin could go out in the first two rounds to a team that saw him on the right day. He's a 6.6-second runner over 60 yards, with impressive bat speed and above-average raw power. He has maintained his tools despite several football injuries, including a broken collarbone and back issues that caused him to miss games. His football intensity is evident on the diamond. Some scouts question his pitch recognition and selectivity at the plate, and how usable his power will be in games when he faces more advanced pitching.
22 1020 St. Louis Cardinals Ronnie Shaban RHP Virginia Tech Va.
23 1021 Boston Red Sox Chris Carlson OF Orange Coast (Calif.) CC Calif.
One of the catalysts for Orange Coast's powerhouse team this spring, Carlson is a small and instinctive player, and his slightly above-average speed plays up on the basepaths and in the outfield. He has surprising strength in his lefthanded swing, given his 5-foot-10 build. Carlson's knack for making contact and advanced baseball skills give him a shot, but his size and modest raw tools mean he'll have to prove himself at every level. He is a New Mexico State signee.
24 1022 Tampa Bay Rays Luke Goodgion RHP Lewis-Clark State (Idaho) Idaho
25 1023 Arizona Diamondbacks Jonathan Pulley RHP Spartanburg Methodist (S.C.) JC S.C.
26 1024 Detroit Tigers Tyler Hanover 2B Louisiana State La.
27 1025 Milwaukee Brewers Austin Hall RHP Brigham Young Utah
28 1026 Texas Rangers Ryan Burr RHP Highlands Ranch (Colo.) HS Colo.
Burr has been on the prospect scene for a while, which often leads to players being nitpicked to death by scouts. In the summer, Burr was in the 91-94 mph range and there were reports of him touching even higher. He has an ideal pitcher's frame at 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds, still has a baby face and turns 18 just a few days before the draft. He settled into the 89-92 mph range this spring and mixed in a mid-70s curveball and low-80s changeup. Burr's delivery raises some eyebrows with scouts. He has a long arm action in the back with a big stab and a bit of a wrist wrap. He also tends to land on his heel and both factors make it difficult for Burr to throw strikes and show consistency with his secondary offerings. Those factors, in addition to his commitment to Arizona State, likely mean Burr will end up heading to college.
29 1027 New York Yankees Saxon Butler 1B/C Samford Ala.
Butler hits three-hole for Samford and has worked out as a catcher for scouts. He has hit the last two years and added 14 homers this spring.
30 1028 Philadelphia Phillies Kyle Cody RHP Chippewa Falls (Wis.) HS Wis.
Cody defines projectability with his lean 6-foot-6, 215-pound frame and size 17 shoes. Considered virtually unsignable at this point, he could blossom into an early-round 2015 draft pick after three years at Kentucky. Cody's arm works well and he has good body control for such a big teenager. He already throws 87-91 mph with more velocity to come as he gets stronger. He not only flashes a plus knuckle-curve, but he also does a good job of locating it. He doesn't need a changeup against Wisconsin high school competition, but he has shown the makings of one in bullpen workouts.
